Bright: Samurai Soul

Bright: Samurai Soul

Bright (2017), directed by David Ayer and featuring Will Smith and Joel Edgerton, looked like a fresh and original entry in the fantasy genre that is filled with remakes, reboots, sequels, prequels, and watered-down adaptations. But then the movie ended up being bad, which killed its chances of getting a sequel. And the fact that its writer, Max Landis, turned to be a sex offender motivated people to wipe any and every memory they had about the movie. So, when you see the words “based on the live-action movie Bright” before watching Bright: Samurai Soul (2021), don’t feel sorry for not recalling the experience of watching such a movie. It’s totally okay to view this anime as a standalone film that’s associated with nothing.
